Publisher's Summary

Beloved and best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann writes terrific edge-of-your-seat novels of romantic suspense set in the world's exciting danger zones and exotic hot spots. Now, in her sensational new novel, she comes stateside for her most action-packed adventure yet.

It was supposed to be a dog and pony show, an elaborate demonstration of SEAL rescue techniques to celebrate a presidential visit to a California naval base. Professional, no-nonsense White House stafferJoan DaCosta arrives early to scope out the area. Assigned to be her SEALliaison is Lieutenant Junior Grade Mike Muldoon, a born leader - strong, decisive, tough, and fearless.

Against her better judgment, Joan finds herself drawn to the handsome young officer. Skilled at being "one of the guys" in the mostly male world of politics, she is dismayed when Muldoon breaks through her defenses. While tension mounts between them, fueling their growing attraction, a far more sinister danger is lurking, as terrorists plot a daring attack against the president. To protect their commander-in-chief, Joan and Muldoon must risk not only their hearts but their very lives.

Threads of Story Connecting Subsequent Books

Where does Into the Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's in the 'good' section, not the 'great' one. It's important for understanding the continuation of character arcs, but Muldoon and Joan aren't that interesting taken on their own.

What other book might you compare Into the Night to and why?

Probably Over the Edge, book 3 in this series. Similarly, it features two semi-compelling main characters, with lots of secondary character development.

What does Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The ability to 'read' while driving?

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I think what this book most noticeably evoked in me was awareness that a background character that the reader might have formerly disliked and seen as simplistic and trope-ish can be brought into a "POV" role and become sympathetic and complex. In my mind, Mary Lou - prior to this book - was an insecure gold-digger effectively. In this book, the listener gets to hear more of her back story, childhood, and really her growth as she sees beyond some of her own prejudice.

Any additional comments?

What's really neat to me is the easy-to-miss small threads that tie these books together; as an example, the team mentions in this book that they are preparing for Operation Black Lagoon. Not a lot is said about the mission here, as the story ends before the mission occurs, but in a subsequent book, the operation comes up as significant to one character's backstory in particular.

Good

Good story but find male narrator very distracting. He does poorly with Texas accent as well as voice changes for different characters. I'm going through the series and the narration is most disappointing!

Even better on the second pass

I enjoyed this book the first time I read it. After reading the rest of the series, I'm making my way through again quite a while later. There are so many important plot twists that are planted here. I didn't notice half (or more) at the time. Very impressive story line across so many great stories!

Into The Night

After listening to the book I remember why I only read this particular book only once. Many subplots! It was better listening to the story being read to follow the various subplots but this was one story that I had to pay attention to. Narration was great - loved the accents used by the narrators really added depth to the characters.

Pretty Good...just not Great.

This was a pretty good addition to the Troubleshooters series. it set everything up for the next book. Honestly the story between Mike and Joan wasn't nearly as exciting as the couples in the previous books. Don't get me wrong Mike was just as dreamy as the other Seals...something was just missing between him and Joan to me. Now the side story of Mary Lou and Ibraham made the book for me along the with the WWII story. Of course at the end of the day a so-so Suzanne Brockmann novel is better than some of the best work of other authors. I'm a fan through and through and I will be picking up the next book. I'm so excited to FINALLY read Sam and Alyssa's story! Not to mention continuing Max and Gina and see what happens with Mary Lou and Ibraham. Come on Brockmann, don't let me down!

Joan the Moaner & Mary Lou the Whiner

I liked the way that Suzanne Brockman's U.S. Navy Seals are strong, smart and sexy but not the violent alpha jerks who have been so popular in recent romantic fiction. Thankfully these brave warriors do not enjoy beating, humiliating and degrading the women in their lives. Refreshingly, these military heroes actually like and respect the opposite sex.

Unfortunately, the main plot of the 5th book revolves around Joan (White House PR person), age 32 who moaned & groaned about being too old and too fat to be attractive to Lt. Mike (age 25). Joan was a pathetic bore, but not as obnoxious as Mary Lou, who whined constantly that her husband Sam didn't appreciate her.

The backstory of Joan's grandparents, who met during WW2, was interesting but not enough to save this novel from being too depressing for words. Mary Lou was a conniving, selfish bigot; Sam was a total martyr, and Joan thought that lying for a living was an admirable profession. It's truly sad when the most interesting women in a romance are a 83 year old grandmother and a 1 year old baby.

While I managed to finish this audiobook, my mind wandered often. I found the experience more annoying than entertaining, although I believe the author is talented. I just wished that she would write more self-confident and assertive female characters.
